Curriculum - Hive



Hive is a global membership community for entrepreneurs committed to creating a better world. Our flagship annual event is the Hive Global Entrepreneur Summit (GES), hosted every August in Scotts Valley, California. 

We also host Hive programs in Nigeria, Germany, Canada, Pakistan, Romania, Mexico, India, and Australia. Below is an example of the curriculum taught during a Hive program. Use the tabs to toggle between each of the three days.



Key Topics: What is going on in the world today? What are the macro trends of the 21st century? What are the biggest opportunities? Are humans making progress?

Hive events are designed to educate and connect leaders who are making a big positive impact in the world. The curriculum has been built for mission-driven entrepreneurs who are dedicated to creating a future that is radically better than the present. Hive is designed to transform your life and transform your leadership, so that you can transform the world in community.

Hive provides transformative entrepreneurship and leadership training, integrating elements of purpose, life design, wellness, the arts, authentic relating, rapid prototyping and global systems thinking. On day one we look at what is happening in the world. We look at the Global Grand Challenges, look at how humanity is doing across health, education, economics, happiness, and the environment. On day two we discuss what is happening your life, look at your health and wellness and your financial plan, go through a Designing Your Life Workshop, create your goals, reevaluate your habits, and create your personal one page plan. Finally on day three we look at what is happening in your business and learn about authentic leadership and scaling a company and finalize your company's one page strategic plan. Graduates leave the program with clarity on their purpose for the next phase of their lives and a lifelong global community of leaders there to support them on their journey.

The Hive curriculum was designed based upon the team’s experiences with the Harvard Graduate School Leadership Institute, the Harvard Business School MBA program, the Singularity University Executive Program, the Stanford Designing Your Life course, the LAUNCH Accelerator, the Highland Capital Summer Program, the Art of Living Happiness Program, the Landmark Curriculum for Living, and the work of GoogleX innovator Tom Chi.
